Other models included the Model K and Magic Six later in 1914. The death of Henry U. Palmer did have some effect on the Palmer-Singer Manufacturing Company. 1913 and 1914 had much fewer models offered than previous years and the company when into receivership in 1914. Likely reason was World War I that began on 28 July 1914 and the material shortage caused by the war.
